Hey now,
being THE Dire Wolf will attract snippy dogs, Jack Londons White Fang from Chapter 23 >>

"Go to it," he said to White Fang.

But White Fang could not believe. He looked at the master, and he looked at the dogs. Then he looked back eagerly and questioningly at the master.

The master nodded his head. "Go to them, old fellow. Eat them up."

White Fang no longer hesitated. He turned and leaped silently among his enemies. All three faced him. There was a great snarling and growling, a clashing of teeth and a flurry of bodies. The dust of the road arose in a cloud and screened the battle. But at the end of several minutes two dogs were struggling in the dirt and the third was in full flight. He leaped a ditch, went through a rail fence, and fled across a field. White Fang followed, sliding over the ground in wolf fashion and with wolf speed, swiftly and without noise, and in the centre of the field he dragged down and slew the dog.

With this triple killing his main troubles with dogs ceased. The word went up and down the valley, and men saw to it that their dogs did not molest the Fighting Wolf.

Of course, direwolf is a peaceful and fun loving wolf, but the dawgs remain the same

I also loved Bambi and The Wind in the Willows-lol (well, in the 3rd grade) then i graduated to Fantasy & Science Fiction in High School. Think I'll re-read White Fang, it's my favorite Jack London book.
